I just finally finished Earthbound last night, and was inspired to get art done. So, I asked Fiz and she said "lol k"
Anyways, my thoughs on the game to actually give this post some content. It's beautifully made, as has been said so many times. The epic story, espcially covered by the coffee breaks. The quirky characters (Mr. Saturns, Mr. Carpainter, the enemies..), the locations (Lumine Hall especially. That was my favorite Sanctuary I think), and just the whole way it was put together and paced. It went by at just the right speed I think.
And of course, the huge rivalry between Ness and Pokey drew me in so much. I can't wait to see Mother 3 translated, so I can see how the story continues. All I know is that I really wanna beat Pokey around some..because he is, as Riley Freeman once put it, a "bitch nigga."
That final fight gave me shivers. I'm glad I never actually finished it as a kid. Gigyas was as scary as I'd been told he was..but I wasn't expecting the change in appearance at the last bit of the fight. Not to mention the music. Oh the music of the game! I'm so glad I have the soundtrack, and Bound Together.
So, yeah. I need to see if I can pick up an actual physical copy some day, to enshrine and worship and never actually play. That would be a valued treasure if I could ever actually get it.
